Join me on this odd and creative adventure in turning changing a boring wooden spoon into something with a little more style and pizzaz.Read more
My first experience with leather & my very unpleasant second experience with hardcover binding coupled with a steampunk and grungy theme yielded some interesting results.Read more

Another year rolls by and once again we're at that time when our favorite companies are churning out some of our favorite products! Simon Says Stamp has once again managed to blow our minds away with beautiful releases for this year's STAMPtember™!Read more
so this is my second time making a mini album. This time I followed the tutorial which made it a little less messy and chaotic than the first time.Read more
My first attempt turned out a bit sloppy but it was my first time. It's definitely one of the more difficult stitches to pull off without some prior practice. I'll have to practice it a few more times before I can work out the right tension and the right way to maneuver the book while I'm stitching it up.Read more
So for the binding of this particular book I thought I'd try to use the fabric that I bought as strips with a French Link stitch. At first I struggled to pick a color for the string because I didn't have any pastel colors...Read more
A mix and match of colors, stitches and more!Read more
Hey all and welcome to part two of this wonderful little journey of making this book! I hope you're all enjoying it so far. Last time we left off working with sprays, paints and inks and lots of glossy accents! The lovely centerpiece dried and so I began to assemble the book.Read more
so lately I've been in a rather creative rut. I thought learning a new stitch or scrolling through Pinterest would help get the creative juices flowing but it didn't.
Still it wasn't without its used.. I had an abundance of paper left over from my recent commission and lots of books to make. I looked through the cut files I had on my cameo and then slowly an idea began to formulate.Read more
This one was a real head scratcher!Read more
The other day I decided I want to play around a little and see what I can do with some distress inks and my newly acquired Silhouette Cameo. I didn't want to make a big book or an elaborate one so I thought I'd make little saddle stitched notepads.Read more
This is a sad, sad day for me. I was so close! So close to finishing this lovely journal and putting to one side in a protected corner. Things were going well; I had everything planned. I began preparing the cloth I picked with some Heat'n'Bond and tissue paper to make it easier for gluing. I cut a piece and things were going swimmingly!Read more
Ever since I subscribed to Sea Lemon and began watching her bookbinding videos along with many different DIY tutorials; I began to grow ever more curious about bookbinding. So, one day I decided to be brave and dive into this strange and creative world. Little did I know that it was going to grow into this new obsession.Read more
This is an idea that came to me when I realized that the tablet case I was using was being a pain. The magnetic closure on the tablet, when flipped back to fold behind the tablet, interfered with the device and put it to sleep while I was using. It was frustrating and I felt I wasted my money on what was supposed to be a good tablet. So, I thought to myself 'how hard could it to be to make a tablet case out of chipboard and paper?. The answer: Very hard.Read more
I am happy to announce that my blog is now self-hosted! It was a random step really and a big one. A few days ago, I decided I wanted to buy a domain and put my blog on a website. I want this website to have everything about me from my writing, my blogging, my graphic design and even my crafting. I wanted to mash everything that is me into one place. I guess it’s like a mark of a new beginning. A step towards a certain direction that could be wrong or could be right, who knows?
Without further ado, I give you my website:
and I hope you can join me on this journey of growth and self-discovery.
Thank you all for your continuing support and participation.
